Here we shall find occasional new items on the theme of my first two books – LOVING THE BOY and THE POWER OF LOVE… i.e. GAY love. No significant porn, but guys showing their love and caring for one another in every which way. There may be occasional nudity and intimate images.
New Items will always be added immediately beneath this notice.
Guys Who Care
Apr 2nd 2018
In the 1940s, expressing ones gayness was not easy. Posing for, and privately reading, “physical culture” magazines was one way: first today, from 1946, an athletic couple who took advantage of a sympathetic photographer’s skill to express themselves:
I invite you to look closely at the final picture there and explain how the top guy’s body seems to be emerging through the floor (or table) that the other guy is seemingly lying on!
Here’s a more modern ‘threesome’ montage:
Meanwhile, some more couples:
And just for a laugh…
Apr 15th 2018
Dave and I don’t happen to ‘do’ gay marriage as such – it just seems to us rather unnecessary. But we certainly subscribe to the next slogan…
…such as this handsome ‘Schwuler’!
…and now, a dozen more gay couples, sharing their love:
The next pair are likely porn actors, but it seems genuine love too…
Now, don’t look too closely here…
…or, indeed, here:
…and as for these two, really…
Quote of the Day…
“Why are You Gay?”
“I Wanted to Make My Life More Difficult…”
I’m not sure whether this next image is ‘Gay Expression’ or just ballet boys having fun… or just one for car freaks (or just freaks)… any which way, I post it here! It works best if you view from a distance…
…and now some couples for Easter Monday Apr 2nd 2018:
(Isn’t that sooooooo sweet?)

Get off the phone and read a book! Preferably one of mine…
Ten More Couples… (some NSFW)

No question here:
Breakfast in bed!
Couples Doing Their Thing
Mar 11th 2018
Love expressed in various ways…
(OK, that one was posed for a magazine cover, but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt)
I did say ‘various ways’…
The ‘essence’ of a guy?…
And now, since the clothes are off… NSFW for the next three!
(You might like to try analysing their expressions!)
Mar 4th 2018
In our present location, a vacation centre which particularly welcomes gay (and fit!) guests, we invited a friendly pair to select 10 images which “say something” to them about their own sexuality: – no inferences should be drawn about the sexuality of the subjects, which are unknown to us. If any image offends, I will immediately remove it if notified. Here then, with no further comment, are the choices of Pavl and Petr.
More Expressions of Love

…and, maybe, a different way of expressing your affection for your partner?…

Namaste: The Sacred Nature of Masculine Sexuality
Jan 31st 2018
Here are profound comments from a fan of another blog on, as he puts it, the sacred nature of our masculine sexuality. It is not some abstract understanding. It is a physicality that rises to spiritual quality:
“With regard to mutual masturbation, I’ve always felt there is something very sacred, very powerful even beyond the sexual context of the penis and testicles. Life is about growth and renewal at every level of existence whether it be an animal, plant or human being.
“The propensity of life is always forward and the catalyst of that momentum of existence is the seed. It begins the process of renewal again and again into infinity. Without the seed, there is no life. That’s why I believe men have been blessed with a very sacred and paramount responsibility not just in the evolution of physical life but in that of consciousness as well.
“While women are the nurturers of life, men are the force of life. That’s why I believe men have such a strong propensity to continue to spread the seed of life, regardless of the issues that may arise with man-made institutions like marriage and monogamy. Our responsibility is a divine one, rightly ordered as part of the mysterious plan of life. It is sacred, holy, beautiful.
“As such, I believe that the greatest way someone can honour a man in this respect and his “maleness” is to touch and hold his penis and testicles, the instruments of this greatly gifted responsibility with acknowledgment, awe and love. It’s similar to the Hindu word, Namaste, which means: ‘I recognize in you the place where we are both one.’
“To hold the weight of a man’s penis in your hand, to caress and adore it is to say: “I recognize you as a god, a creator of life in the great plan of God.” This sentiment can’t be any more deeply expressed than when you take a man’s penis into your mouth. There’s a reason that you kneel in front of a man in this respect, because the phallus and its power are worthy of our worship. That’s why so many ancient societies understood and revered the power of the phallus. I was in Italy several years ago touring the ruins of Pompeii and there were penises everywhere—moulded into the street tiles and on thousands of front doors. The penis was blessed and revered as a symbol of power, life, goodwill and vitality.
“Unfortunately, our society shames men into hiding that power or worse, disowning it. You can show a completely naked woman on film and it will only receive an R-rating. If a man’s penis is shown—in any context, not just sexual, the film gets an automatic NC-17 (aka “X”) rating. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t see this paradox as the media’s way of objectifying women. While the media and our society have certainly done that in the past, keeping the male phallus out of view is a way of training the public mind that there is something “wrong” with the penis. It’s a way of getting us to deny the power or the phallus, OUR OWN power and thus deny our own selves, our spirits.
“It’s not only the media. This prejudice goes back much further. If you look at much classic art (with the exception of Michelangelo who is thought to have been gay), you’ll see that the women in many paintings are freely nude and expressing their femininity while the men are nearly nude with a sash, leaf or some other convenient concealing device covering the penis. It’s a very, VERY subtle denial of power that we eventually learn. That’s why I won’t have any piece of art in my home that has a nude male with his penis covered. I don’t care what “master ” painted it….
“The only way to have a real experience and start KNOWING some things is with another human being. The blogs aren’t experiences (as great as they are). They’re intellectual exercises. Your body isn’t intellectual. It’s visceral. It doesn’t understand words. Its language is energy and passion!”
More Loving Twosomes
Jan 28th 2018
Do you love… or are you loved by… another guy? If you are, or even if you are not, but can understand those that do and can appreciate the freedom to express oneself that we enjoy in the West, savour the moment and then read on, about Henderson…
Jan 23rd 2018
Henderson is a young man from South Sudan who was forced to flee the country because his parents and close family threatened to kill him… because it had become clear that he was gay. Initially he fled to Cairo, which was a gay ‘safe haven’ until the authorities suddenly took a different line. Somehow, he found the money – possibly by prostitution – to get a flight to Libya, from where he hoped to get a boat across the Med to Europe with other refugees. That didn’t work out either and ,eventually, he was put on a flight to Sudan (not South Sudan, which by then had passed a new law criminalising any same-sex relations with a ten-year prison sentence. That didn’t work out either, and eventually he went back to Cairo, concealing his real ‘nature’, where he is currently ‘stuck’. Essentially, he has been ‘on the run’ now for nearly eighteen months.
For many, such treatment would lead to suicidal thoughts – “the only way out”. Not this guy. Instead, he encountered a journalist from ‘The Times’ (London) and told his story, which appeared in the newspaper about a week ago.
Those of us who don’t face death or imprisonment for being gay can maybe spare a thought for Henderson and for all those in his situation. And be grateful for the love that (by and large) our families have for us… “…even though…”
AND: it is not just South Sudan with such a policy: here are a couple of items about Chechnya:
Choosing ‘Mr Right’
Jan 19th 2018
Dave and I know exactly what we like to see in a guy… each other, for a start, and then some of our closest friends. But, just for fun, we’ve selected 20 young gentlemen here, with various “attributes”, whom you might like to ‘rate’ as suitable gay companions! In doing this, we make no suppositions about the sexuality of the guys pictured, all of which are unknown to us.
If you feel you want to comment about any of them, I suggest that you do so via the BLOG POST “Choosing Mr Right” which appears on the Home Page with today’s date. You can comment on this page, but it will appear only at the bottom of what will become a rather long trail as the content of the page increases, and your comments may go unnoticed by other readers! N.B. Numbers relate to the image below.
There you go then. Numbers apply to the pic below: best to comment (if you want to) on the Jan 19th 2018 blog post advertising this update, because your comments will be more visible. If you prefer, tell me privately on firstname.lastname@example.org
Jan 10th 2018
I love the angle on this next shot!
You might be interested in these books which develop this theme, along with lots of sporting/showtime activity and some (mis) adventure…
Dec 29th 2017
The next image is kind of a threesome, but it still fits here I think:
…as is this…
OK, that’s it so far. No nudity yet! Let me know what you think either by comment below or via e-mail at email@example.com
